This course has the information you need to understand what DevOps is all about. Is it a role? Is it a team? Is it a product? Just hype? We'll find out together.

By the end of this course, you'll know what you need to move forward with adopting a DevOps style that lasts. This is a topic I care a lot about, and I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about DevOps with this DevOps: The Big Picture, course here, at Pluralsight.
